ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC22 - Week 37

Welcome to Week 37 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  Our hostess, Angela, has the RSC Quilters working on our Light BLUE scraps.  This was a full week and some sewing was involved, but is wasn't in the Color of the Month.  As usual, I have found a way to include it, anyway.

Wanna see???

SUNDAY - This is a section of the quilt on our bed.  It was made by members of Capital Quilters Guild in Raleigh.  It's hard to believe that I won it more than 20 years ago:

My week started off with a Zoom call with Knittingsuek:

Note the Light BLUE shirt!!  :o))

The day's ABC Printing Challenge prompt was "J" for Jeans:

MONDAY - This morning, I met up with a friend and it turned into another episode of Coffee and Collage.  I transformed the pencil drawing on the left with bits of paper, some colored pencil, and a few paint pens:

Late in the day, I worked on another gel print and a journal card for the Art Journal in September challenge:

- Abstract photo?  Apparently, I moved as a was attempting to capture the sunset as we left for our evening walk:

WEDNESDAY - I finished a UFO today.  Just in time to meet the deadline!  It's my Guild challenge quilt.  I'll post about it next week.

In the meantime...

Today was a work day.  I'm pleased to say that I won at Wordle...

And Quordle, too:

It was a glorious afternoon, but for some reason traffic was at a standstill on the interstate:

Beautiful Light BLUE skies for my RSC friends.

An alternate route got me home just in time to Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

After dinner, I worked on my version of "N" for Nature gelli print:

THURSDAY - My day began with some drawing.  Below is the photo of my interpretation of the ECLIPSE prompt for Day 10 of the Inchie Challenge:

It was another work/Wordle day today:

Of course, I played (and won) the day's Quordle game, as well:

Once the work day was done, I spotted this sign as I headed downtown:

Outside my destination, this old carousel horse appears to be looking longingly at the books inside May Memorial Library.  I was on the hunt for journal material at the Used Book Sale:

He's sporting a bit of Light BLUE on his blanket.

A new Car Wash just opened and is offering FREE washes.  I can't even tell you the last time my car had a bath!

Soaped up...

And rinsed off:

FRIDAY - Knit Group turned into Coffee and Collage for me:

It was good to see these friends again:


I did quilt a scrap of Light BLUE this afternoon to test out last weekend's longarm "repair" performed by DS1.  The stitch regulator appears to be working, but the tension needs an adjustment:

Once that test was done, I headed out to Ella's to pick up a scrap bag:

Thanks, Ella!!

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  I hope you will join me in visiting Angela @ So Scrappy to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week.

This is where I was headed last night...

Finish It Friday:

I worked on cutting batting and backings for two 2021 Positivity quilts:

They will soon be quilted and once the cutting was done, I drew my LAST square for the Inchie Challenge.  The prompt was INTERWOVEN:

With my drawing complete, I dove into that lovely bag of fabric scraps and I spy some Light BLUE for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

Hmm... What shall I make???

Until next time...


  1. You are becoming quite the artist. Or should I say "arteest"?

  2. So amazing to see all the art and projects. A whirl wind of a week with so many place to be and see. The energy is positive for all the creative endeavours, Maggie

  3. Fun projects and lovely journal pages. I specially like the "gel print and a journal card" one.


  4. You are doing well with the journal/collages! What fun to meet with friends!

  5. Scraps are becoming one of my favorite things to sew with. Quilty friends who share scraps are awesome!
